We give help and support to young people who are leaving, or have recently left, our care. This includes:

  • Helping you make plans for the future and preparing to live independently
  • Keeping in touch as you move into work, education or training
  • Helping you find a decent place to live

We also provide financial support for 16 and 17 year olds who have left our care, and aim to keep in touch with care leavers until the age of 21 (24 if you go on to higher education).

For more information about the help you are entitled to, call the 16+ team phone 01432 261625 or email 16plus@herefordshire.gov.uk
